Happy New Year!

Hello everyone. I know it has been a while but I have been very sick and got nothing accomplished.

The kids went back to school today and the quiet is wonderful. I can think and type all at the same time. I enjoyed my time with them but stamping and kids don't really go well together. We played lots of games and lots of Wii. It snowed here a little bit so finally we got to sled. It was a great vaca but I am ready to get back to the regular schedule.

I did take some time yesterday to play with my goodies from Ellen Hutson which I have to say came super fast. I am talking ordered on December 27 and I got the box on December 29. I live on the east coast and her store is on the west coast. I am thrilled with the service they provide and you should see the stamps. I finally ordered some for myself with some birthday money.

I made this card to send to Ellen to thank her for the great customer service. I got my inspiration from the ribbon. It is from american crafts and has been sitting in a drawer just waiting to be used.

I used basic grey, orchid opulence and pixie pink from SU!. The white is stampers select from PTI. I colored the cupcake with my copics, also from Ellens store and highlighted with the spica glitter pens. The sentiments are from MFT Essential Sentiments. The dp is retired from SU! This card was a lot of fun and I am pretty happy with the turnout. You can't see the glitter very well in the pic but it is there. I also used the corner rounder and scallop circle punches from SU!

As always TFL and please share your comments on this card. Have a stamp happy day!

I forgot to add that this sketch was from Amy Rysavy and labeled AMYRS5. Thanx Amy!
